1 IT S STRING THEORY, BABY! TIME: Present by Herbert M. Midgley 2006 by Herbert Midgley All Rights Reserved PLACE: A garden in the South CHARACTERS: A pretty girl in her late 20 s. She was raised in a small Texas town and has good morals. She has on a nice blue dress, that isn t too flashy for her old town ethics. A regular looking guy in his early 30 s. He was raised in a small Texas town and has good morals. He is dressed in a black suit, white shirt and a power red tie. Playwright s note. Given all the parallel universes, there is at least one couple that is truly happy. is walking next to on a nice spring day. Oh boy. (Beat) This is fun. (Beat) Bert? Bert!? (Staring forward then looks at ) Oh, what? (They both stop walking and stand near each other.) You ll never get a girl if you don t pay attention to her while walking her home. (Beat) Are you having fun? Of course. I always have fun with you. Being with you is great Wendy. (Beat) It s a great day here. A great day to be alive. Your mind was elsewhere, wasn t it? No it was.. Bert? Yeah, I was thinking.

2 Thinking? You re always thinking. Thinking about what Bert? (Beat) Something important? No, yes! (Looks at nervously) Not really important to anyone other than me. Penny for your thought? Do you even have any pennies anymore? (Both look at each other, then they smile at each other.) As we are walking around this beautiful garden, I can t help but think about how everything is put together. The flowers? The trees? Yeah, and more. You and me. The dirt that we re walking on. The air we re breathing. That stone over there. The Earth, all of it. (Beat) The whole enchilada! Didn t God make it? That s what I was taught in Sunday school. (They start walking again.) Yeah. Me too. (Looks at his feet then at Wendy s face.) Strings. What about them? (She turns around) Where? Do I need my scissors? We are all made up of strings. (Gives him a what you talking about look ) I was raised to believe that I was made of sugar and spice

3 And everything nice. No. I m not made of slugs, snails or puppy dog tails either. No, strings. You and I are nothing but a lot of strings combined together. (Thinks for a moment) M Theory, right? Yeah Wendy. M Theory. It s where M can stand for the Master Theory. It s skeptics like to say the that M stands for the Magicial Theory, the Mythical Theory, the Mystery Theory, the Murky Theory and even the Moronic Theory. Are you one of those skeptics Bert? I was for a while. I mean at one time there were five different string theories floating around. Wow! That many? Yeah. It wasn t until they started to think of those strings in the first dimension that all the different string theories came together. Which meant that we would have eleven dimensions instead of the four ones we normally think about. Length, width and height are the three dimensions. With time being the fourth dimension. (Beat) It s cool that you can think fourth dimensionally Wendy. (Both smile at one another) Only when you re around Bert. It s hard enough to visualize the fourth dimension in one s mind. What could the eleventh dimension be like? Multiverse. More than one universe. Well actually a lot more than just one universe. A whole more.

4 How much more Bert? Wendy, so many that our minds could never comprehend them all. So where does the Big Bang come involved? That was the rub for a long time. Why there were so many skeptics. The reason why I was a skeptic too. It has something to do with the eleventh dimension, doesn t it Bert? It sure does. With a multiverse as the paradigm the Big Bang could be explained. No way! (Puts a finger up) Check this out. The common Big Bang theory that most people know states that our universe started from nothing. Nowhere. Zippo! However now the whole enchilada could start when two different universes collided together. It does? Yes. With a snap of a finger, (snaps fingers) two different universes collided and our universe begins. Wow. Does that happen all the time? You ready to have your mind blown wide open. (Whispers to her ear) It happens all the time! No.

5 Yes. It s happening right now. See every action that we do, every choice we make, a new parallel universe pops up. Us walking right instead of going to the left. Snap, a new parallel universe. You blinking your left eye instead of both eyes and bam, a new parallel universe. You smiling and me frowning instead the other way around and poof, a new parallel universe. I do believe you got it Wendy. In one parallel universe you may not have been born. In another I wasn t born either. The next one the human race never occurred. Maybe I m a conman and you re a grifter in another. Or maybe you re a Hollywood movie star and I m an astronaut. (Beat) I bet in one, I make prank calls all of the time! (Beat) And perhaps in one parallel universe, snap, (snaps fingers) you and I are a couple. (Downplays his last sentence) If you say so Bert. (Beat) It s such a great day, let s not get too serious. You know we can have a talk and not have the weight of the world on our shoulders. True. That s true Wendy. (Beat) You re the one girl that I can talk to about strings, parallel universes and other mind warping topics. Most other girls would run away as soon as I started to talk about other dimensions. I suppose that you have these kind of deep talks with everyone you hang out with. (Looks at him with a blank expression) No. You re the only one. At times I feel that you re the only one I can truly talk to. I mean it Bert, I can truly talk to you about anything and everything. (Both stop walking) Yeah, me too. (Beat) Hey Wendy, do you ever think about you know, you and me. Well, you know, being together. I think about you all the time! You know that. That s not what I mean. I mean we are so close and you know that I m crazy about you and

6 I m crazy about you too, but Not the but. (Beat) Whenever there s a but, there are no happy endings to that story. (Sighs) But! But I have boyfriend. You know that. I didn t ask about your boyfriend, I asked about us being together. (Looks up and down and fidgets) Then yes. (Looks him straight in the eye) Yes! I think about us being together all the time! But Bert, you know the but. Don t make me say it out loud. (Beat) Please. I m going to say it. (Softly) Don t. Your boyfriend is a type A controlling jerk that treats you like garbage and I m in love with you. ( and both snap their fingers. Fade to black. Lights return with a blue spotlight on them. Then the lighting is back to normal. and have changed sides.) Yeah, me too. (Beat) Hey Bert, do you ever think about you know, you and me. Well, you know, being together. I think about you all the time! You know that. That s not what I mean. I mean we are so close and you know that I m crazy about you and

7 I m crazy about you too, but Not the but. (Beat) Whenever there s a but, there are no happy endings to that story. (Sighs) But! But I have girlfriend. You know that. I didn t ask about your girlfriend, I asked about us being together. (Looks up and down and fidgets) Then yes. (Looks him straight in the eye) Yes! I think about us being together all the time! But Wendy, you know the but. Don t make me say it out loud. (Beat) Please. I m going to say it. (Softly) Don t. Your girlfriend is a type A controlling harpy that treats you like garbage and I m in love with you. ( and both snap their fingers. Fade to black. Lights return with a blue spotlight on them. Then the lighting is back to normal. and have changed sides and directions.) and Yeah, me too. (Both laugh) Hey, do you ever think about you know, you and me. (Both look at each other and laugh) Well, you know, being together. I think about you all the time Wendy! You know that.

8 I think about you all the time Bert! You know that. (Both look at each other weirdly) and That s not what I mean. I mean we are so close and you know that I m crazy about you and (Both look at each other and laugh) I m crazy about you too, but I m crazy about you too, but and Not the but. (Beat) Whenever there s a but, there are no happy endings to that story. (Both stop and look at each other, and both shake their heads.) Ok Wendy, let s only speak one at a time from now on. This is freaking me out! Agreed. Man Bert, that was weird. Like something out of a 1950 s black and white Sci- Fi movie. I mean. Wendy I m crazy about you. I adore you my love. Bert honey, I m crazy nuts about you. I adore you too, my love. (Both hold each other s hand. takes into his arms and gives her a romantic kiss. They break and are still holding hands as they start to walk again.) You know Wendy, that in some strange parallel universe we may have never met. Or this is even crazier, maybe we know each other. And for some idiotic reason I m dating some type A controlling jerk that treats me like garbage and you are with type A controlling harpy that treats you like garbage. (Both stop and look at each other and shake their heads to indicate no way )

9 I have pity for them. Who honey? Any Wendy and Bert in those parallel universes that aren t a couple. In life you have to take chances. Big chances. When you know it s the right thing to do, take that chance and make it happen. If two people are meant to be together, fate finds away to make it happen. (Beat) Fate always wins. (She tightens the grip of their handholding) I know that I m lucky to have you in my life. That I m glad to be in this universe, with you and I as a couple. And Bert honey, I love so much, it hurts. Wendy my love, I love you so much that words are inadequate to express my feelings about you, my love of my life. (Beat) It s just sad that maybe there s a Bert out there without a Wendy. You know Bert, I bet that in most of those crazy parallel universes, we re together. I mean look at us together. (Both stop and take a pose.) No two people were meant to be together as much as you and I. We have to be together, if we aren t a couple, the universe just ain t right. Your right, Wendy. You re always right honey. (Hugs her) When two people are destined to be couple, nothing can stop it. Not space or time. Nor crazy parallel universes. No one. Nothing. Bert honey, what should we do now? (Looks her in the eye and hugs her again and smiles.) Everything. ( and both snap their fingers. Fade to black.) THE END
